Looking around a few of the door frames and window frames in our home it may appear someone has a “couple” collection starting. Let’s be honest…it’s me!!
I can’t help but love these types of people. Wood, resin, glass, it does not matter. Each one of these “spoke” to me in some way and I enjoy visiting them every day. You can see each couple as you walk through the main rooms in our home starting from the backroom entry through to the front room office area.
The latest couple above was a thrifty find I had at a local antique mall. I paid $2.00 for the set!!!!!!
They have a resting place on the storage chest for our winter clothing items in our back room and you can see them straight through from the living room or looking out at the backyard.
These cute Amish corner sitters are displayed above the sink in the kitchen with all the antique throat lozenges tins. Sorry for the bad picture but you can see the girl on one side and the boy is on the other.
Next up another cute Amish couple you pass under to enter the living room. They are next to the awesome sign a friend picked up for me. It’s amazing how some friends just know what you would like in your home. I love the detail on this couples clothing. While the Amish sets have no faces, they don’t need them as they are cute enough.
Once entering the living room, the older couple greets you with their farm chore baskets in hand on our mantle. My mother had this set for years in this house when I was growing up. She took them to Florida when she moved there in 1992. She has since moved back by us and I was given this set. It has come full circle.
And the last couple before entering the office area is yet a different set of Amish people. This couple reminds me of teenage Amish kids. I love the colors of their clothing and again, no faces. Here is a history of what I found on why the Amish figures have no faces: Amish Faces
I have many more door frames and window sills waiting for their couple to join our family 🙂
What an interesting and fun post! Thanks for sharing them with us, your readers.
